Meet a mouse narrator who stubbornly insists that this book contains absolutely no dragons—not even a claw nor a flame nor any large, pointy scales. Readers will know better—and enjoy being in on the joke—as a flock of dragons chase the mouse to the very end of the book within the book. Suspense builds humorously as the energetic text insists there are no dragons in this book, leading to a clever, unexpected ending. Clever artwork by Fred Koehler provides fun scenes to linger on and details to discover over multiple readings.
A mouse's repeated and resolute denial of dragons is sorely tested by one fiery disaster after another.... Koehler creates a set of brightly colored dragons set in singed collage scenes... Dragon lovers and all who enjoy being teased by playful disconnects between text and pictures will be plenty happy indeed. ~Booklist
